Aecom has been awarded a contract to provide programme management services for the new, seventh runway at Denver International Airport (DEN). Aecom will coordinate environmental assessment activities and manage the preliminary design effort.

The company will also provide programme controls to balance scope, schedule, risk, and budget; support construction procurement through coordination, alternative delivery analysis, and document preparation; conduct public outreach activities to connect with and inform local businesses and community stakeholders; and oversee and report on program-level disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) participation and engagement.

“As air traffic levels continue to increase, the addition of a future runway at DEN is a crucial realization of the airport’s original master plan and vital to the overall National Airspace System,” said Travis Boone, chief executive of Aecom’s US West region.

Aecom said DEN has one of the most efficient airfield layouts in the nation, with six, non-intersecting runways. It is also one of the few major airports in the US with acreage to expand.

“We’ve been honored to support DEN since its establishment over 25 years ago and are looking forward to leveraging our significant knowledge of the airport’s operating environment and extensive experience in runway delivery to successfully manage this program,” said Lara Poloni, Aecom’s president.
